These comments about bitcoin being good for money laundering are such BS. Do you even understand what money laundering is?
Note: I have worked in Financial IT and have had the AML (Anti-Money Laundering) training which was less impressive that it sounds. lol
The point of money laundering is to make an illegal income look legal. To take large amounts of a given currency received for an illegal act and to provide it a banking trail that makes the money look like it came from a legal source of income.
In most cases money laundering starts with large amounts of cash. Buying bitcoin does not magically make it look ligitement, and what exchange takes cash?
The truth is money laundering tends to be done by mixing the illegal money into the income of an all cash business like vending machines, massage parlours, small computer stores, etc. Then showing it as ligitement income on the books.
